I took the reference photo for this portrait when we were on holiday in the Lake District. I spotted this beauty from the road and we pulled over as I leapt out of the car, camera at the ready hoping I could get a clear photo.

He did better than that, he sauntered towards me making sure I got some good shots then called over his stable mate who was just as obliging. I was talking to them and jokingly said how about you stand together so I can get a shot of you both…..so they did!!

I will draw them both at some point but could not resist this one.


He is a beauty.
